for president obama as you imagine. back to the campaign grind today, mr. obama holds a rally in denver. anded henry traveling live with the president in denverment what is the campaign saying this morning about last night? >> very chilly this morning in denver, chilly reception for the president last night from right to left. i spoke as to stewart stevens, and he said luke can't have bill clinton stand in for you in these debates. it's the one man going head-to-head with the challenger. bill mahr said maybe the t-t doe president does need his teleprompter. when he loses bill mahr he's in a little bit of trouble. i think the president started long with trying to reframe everything. it's not about the last four years it's a choice for the next four years. >> the question here tonight is not where we've been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy and rollback regulations that we'll be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in education and training. >> now it started strong there but then mitt ro

big presidential debate. the showdown in denver between president obama and republican challenger mitt romney. you know romney is looking for a new look and, of course, the president is trying to avoid the incumbent trap of trying to appear arrogant or underprepared. a lot on the line right now. >> a big moment in the campaign because there are so many eyes on this. it's the first of three debates between these two men. it's scheduled to last 90 minutes, and with just 33 days until the election some 60 million people are expected to tune in. former republican candidate rick santorum knows what it's like to go against mitt romney in a debate. we'll talk to him straight ahead, as well as the president's deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter. >>> also ahead, we brought you his incredible story last week, a man looking for a second chance to fulfill his dream after he suffered a debilitating injury in his one and only at-bat in the major leagues. last night, seven years later, adam greenberg finally got that chance. we'll show you how he did and talk to him about the big moment the morn
off of what many supporters viewed as a disappointing debate, president obama is trying to hit reset. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >> reporter: speaking in denver, the president argued mitt romney's debate performance was big on style but short on facts. >> the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. last night, he said he didn't know anything about that. >> reporter: mitt romney quickly tried to capitalize on his momentum. >> last night, i thought it was a great opportunity for the american people to see two different vigs for the country. >> reporter: also in denver, his goal was to frame the obama presidency. >> he will raise taxes on small business, which will kill jobs. >> reporter: the debates started with a handshake, mitt romney quickly landed blows. >> what is -- . >> virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. >> it's mad, it's arithmetic. >> i have no idea what you're talking about. >> he's saying his big,
's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate loss. our cnn/orc poll of viewers, people who actually watched the debate, finds that 67% think mitt romney was the clear winner while only 25% think president obama won. let's get some more now from our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was reasonable, as somebody wh
obama and governor romney meet in a hall in denver. in less than 14 hours they'll be focusing on domestic policy and the economy. it's happening as a brand new cnn poll of polls shows the president maintaining a three-point lead with less than a month to go in the race. joining us is republican congressman jason from the great state of utah. how are you feeling tonight? >> good morning. >> when is the last time you spoke to mitt romney, the candidate, and how is he doing? >> it's been a little time with him last week. i haven't seen him today but i have been with him during the primary season before debates. you know, when you spend that hour sitting in the holding room, it's interesting to see how they reacted. mitt romney's a real cool character. loosy goose. you know, 15, 16 people sitting in the room, just chatting about various things. i think it will probably be very similar tonight. >> let's run through what some of the morning papers, op-eds, especially conservative feedback has been. ross -- he wrote an op-ed in the new york times and he says, the assumption the wealt
obama and mitt romney take the stage in denver tomorrow night, how they look, what they do during the debate may speak louder than what they actually say, or as loudly. research in fact suggests their body language will speak volumes. amy cuddy is an associate professor at harvard business school who studies how people perceive others and what shapes the impressions we have of others. she joins me now. you say that when it comes to gestures, ones that convey power and warmth are really important to make an effective politician. you point to former president bill clinton as the master of warmth. i want to show a video of him during town hall with ross perot and then president bush back in 1992. kind of walk us through what we're seeing. >> okay. >> you know people who have lost their jobs and lost their homes. >> so he's walking toward this woman, toward this voter, away from the people onstage so he's focused on the voter, not on the other candidates. he's gentle. his body language is gentle. he's leaning toward her. he's even softened his voice. he's nodding. he makes incredible
